  • Golden Horde: The Air Force’s Plan For Networked Bombs

    Imagine this scenario: A U.S. Air Force F-22 Raptor pilot races toward a target on the ground and when within striking distance, drops a pair of GPS-guided precision bombs. As the bombs fall from the sky, they themselves notice another, higher-priority target elsewhere on the ground. While one of the bombs stays on course, the second adjusts its trajectory, aiming directly at the second, higher-priority target. Both bombs hit their marks — and all the F-22 pilot had to do was fly them out and release them.
  • Iran Just Turned An Oil Tanker Into A Navy ‘Mothership’

    There’s no doubt that this is the largest Iranian warship to ever sail. But what is it for? Meet the Markan. What Iran Is Doing Iran recently commissioned what is by far their largest ship ever, the Makran, a former oil-tanker-turned-warship. The Islamic Republic calls the Makran a forward operating base ship, intended to extend Iranian reach farther out to sea by acting as a do-it-all launchpad that can keep helicopters and drones fueled and supplied, especially in the shallower littoral waters to the country’s southwest.

    Ayear after a U.S. military operation rid this world of the Iranian terrorist-general Qasem Soleimani, the same tired voices are repeating the same tired message, even on the eve of their return to power: “The Trump administration is on the brink of war with Iran!” “Trump is a very wounded and very cornered animal in an end-game scenario. He’s got a few weeks left, and we know that he is capable of extremely erratic behavior,” says Professor Danny Postel of Northwestern University. After the events of last Wednesday, it’s hard to argue with Postel’s assessment of the president’s psyche. But...

    Long the provenance of science fiction, laser weapons are quickly becoming the new norm. At the forefront? U.S. Navy destroyers. Coming to a Destroyer Near You It almost sounds like something from a sci-fi plot or Star Trek: A U.S. Navy destroyer is underway in the Arabian Sea, full steam ahead toward the Gulf of Oman. Meanwhile, a group of Iranian fast-attack boats approaches, disregarding calls from the destroyer to change their course. They’re armed with various anti-ship missiles and are ready to blow an Arleigh Burke-class destroyer out of the water. But before they’re able to lob their missiles...

    Despite leaving the EU, London may be source its next main battle tank from France and Germany. According to industry reports, the United Kingdom may be interested in the jointly developed Franco-German Eurotank project to replace their aging Challenger 2 main battle tank, which though not a particularly aged tank, will eventually need replacement.

    So, welcome to 2021! If last week was any indication, it is going to be quite an exciting year. It is going to be the year in which GloboCap reminds everyone who is actually in charge and restores “normality” throughout the world, or at least attempts to restore “normality,” or the “New Normality,” or the “Great Normal Reset,” or “The New Normal War on Domestic Terror” … or whatever they eventually decide to call it. In any event, whatever they call it, GloboCap is done playing grab-ass. They have had it with all this “populism” malarkey that has been going...
  • Is Impeaching a President During a War Treason?

    Janitor's view ^ | January 11, 2021 | Reasonmclucus
    We are in a war in which our Iranian enemy has pleaded with unspecified individuals or groups for help removing President Donald Trump from office. There have even been unofficial reward offers, such as a multi-million dollar bounty , for killing President Trump. The Democrats' threat to use impeachment to remove President Trump from office would give our Iranian enemy's leaders what they say they want. Wouldn't that mean the Democrats would be giving aid and comfort to our Iranian enemy? Isn't giving aid and comfort to our enemies what the Constitution calls "treason"?

    The U.S. Marine Corps (USMC) is preparing for a war in the Pacific against a near-peer adversary–that means China. One of their go-to weapons in the future could be a new type of long-range loitering munition or what could be described as a sort of kamikaze bomb. Changing Times In an effort to become more expeditionary and better prepared for combat in a littoral environment, big changes are coming to the United States Marine Corps. At the heart of the USMC’s pivot from land-based counterinsurgency warfare to their traditional maritime expeditionary role is a need to counter an increasingly aggressive...

    I had this week's column all written and ready to go, until the events of Wednesday occurred. I trashed the column and stayed glued to the computer as the events in Washington, D.C., unfolded. I went to bed Wednesday night and hardly slept. I tossed and turned and watched the clock for hours. Election fraud. Antifa provocateur riots. Chaos. Anarchy. Murder. My thoughts tumbled around, each more dire than the last, as I speculated on what the upcoming year would bring. I finally realized the reason behind my sleeplessness: I was mourning America. The events of the last couple months...

    With the election of Joe Biden, Democrats and their supposedly anti-war base now own the war in Iraq, the war in Afghanistan, and any other military conflicts which suddenly appear in the near future. President Trump spent the last four years trying to end those wars while successfully keeping the United States out of new conflicts. For his efforts, he was called a fascist, an asset of Russia, and a traitor to America. Trump brokered historic peace deals throughout the Middle East, yet Democrats and their agents in the media repeatedly called him a threat to democracy. As a United...

    "In his first order of the new year to the country’s armed forces, Chinese President Xi Jinping stressed the need for 'full-time combat readiness',” writes Liu Zhen for the South China Morning Post, "...the PLA must be ready to 'act at any second'." And a Happy New Year to you too! Now I know we Americans can beat the free world at anything from war to tiddlywinks (Meet John Doe) but we'd rather not have to prove it. Y'know what I mean? Americans are a lovely peace-loving people with a Great Peacemaker for a President. But we're also a nation...

    19FortyFive ^ | 01/04/2021 | Peter Suciu
    Many of Russia’s guns of World War II are legends and were mass-produced the world over, but they did not get built or designed overnight. Background: When the Soviet Union faced invasion from Nazi Germany in 1941 its army was still utilizing the same basic bolt action rifle that had been carried a generation earlier during the First World War and the subsequent Russian Revolution and Civil War. However, the Red Army was already looking to develop new small arms, and by the end of the Great Patriotic War – as the Second World War was labeled to the Russian...

    Speculation about the possibility of a U.S attack on Iran has reached a fever pitch as President Donald Trump’s administration winds down. Far from signaling the inevitability of an attack, the partisan panic is a last hurrah for those opposed to Trump’s “maximum pressure” in favor of a more incentives-based outreach. Warnings of war are the gift that keeps on giving for a broad progressive array of organizations that fundraise off the scenario. They make for good press and national security clickbait, but there is little indication that Trump will attack Iran anytime soon.
